Description


Meet the latest addition to the Rising family, Atlanta-based rhymesayer Ben Reilly. 

Freelance and Freelance: Charlie are Reilly’s introductory projects that demonstrate his unshakeable stream-of-conscious technique as a way to relinquish the concept of control and lean into the word and theme of being “free.” The explorative projects tap into his origins in Brooklyn’s Brownsville and his ties to Atlanta, where he relocated to as a teenager.

In an interview with VMP, Reilly shared, “I feel like both [Brooklyn and Atlanta] really shaped me into the person that I am, both on a personal level and a creative level. My attention to lyricism and wordplay and lyrical density… the aggression I like to tap into comes from my New York background.” He added, “But my beat selection, I really like how Atlanta culture is so melodic. So I take both cultures and try my best to kind of mold them and shift them into my own reality.”

Freelance and Freelance: Charlie are the rapper’s ultimate quest for freedom.
